State Anthem of the Tajikistan SSR - ? (vocal)
The "State Anthem of the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic" (Tajik: ?; Russian: ? ? ) was the national anthem of Tajikistan until 1994. It was also the regional anthem of the Tajik SSR, a constituent republic of the Soviet Union.
The anthem used from 1946 to 1994. The music was composed by Suleiman Yudakov, and the lyrics were written by Abolqasem Lahouti. The melody is used in the current national anthem of Tajikistan, with different lyrics. It is composed in minor. In 1977, the lyrics were changed to remove mentions of Joseph Stalin. This is the version presented here for the Tajik stanzas, but the Russian version given here is the old one.
Unlike other former Soviet states like Belarus, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan that appropriated their old Soviet-era regional anthems as national ones but did so without the Soviet lyrics, Tajikistan retained the Soviet lyrics for a time before replacing them in 1994.
It is also one of the six countries to continuously use their Soviet-era anthems; the other five being Uzbekistan, Russia (since 2000), Kazakhstan (until 2006), Turkmenistan (until 1997), and Belarus.
